Aidan O'Brien has won three of the last four renewals and BETTERBETTERBETTER can continue the sequence. Her overall form leaves her with a bit to find but this daughter of Galileo, who is closely related to three fillies placed in the Oaks, has massive potential and can book her place for Epsom here. Her compatriot Absolute Crackers has done well with her second to Homecoming Queen at the Curragh in October now looking a cracking run. She had few problems on her return at Cork and is a very nice prospect. Inchina made all for an impressive maiden success at Newbury and should be kept on the right side while the two expensive fillies at the bottom, Zaina and Zimira, are superbly bred and could be anything. Dreams Of Fire is another who should make progress this season.
